Well I let Moz loose on my outlook PST and although there were a few
fits and starts (I am using the beta version 1.3a) I happily converted a
fairly large mail file (which included a "The List" archive of at least
the last year or so). What is more it imported addresses and
connections. Very impressed so far like you say - half tempted to join
the mozilla evangelising mob! ;) ......now if I could just get GPG to work.
